THAT MRS. RENNEY

Stronger meat than usual, even from Donald Clarke. The story of a trollop who sets her cap for a soft wealthy boy, forcing marriage on him, and then following successive steps to degradation -- drunks, brawls, infidelities, culminating in murder of a former lover. His father dies the week of the crush, penniless -- and she leaves the son, dissolute, indolent, physically and morally undermined. Pretty raw for your rental market -- shoddy and crude -- but well paced and with a certain unpleasant veracity.
